Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.

This hotel was highly recommended by a travel agent as boutique hotel suitable for a family. We expressed concerns regarding the laneway location as we were arriving at night. The travel agent reassured us that it would be fine. This hotel is in a laneway and it is quiet and

Dear Abacus1Brisbane, Thank you for taking the time to share a review on your recent stay with us. While I am pleased to hear that you found your room and linen to be so clean, it is unfortunate that issues prevented you from enjoying your stay to the fullest on this occasion. Our hotel is located within the heart of Melbourne although our laneway frontage means that the entrance to our hotel is subject to less foot traffic than the nearby major thoroughfares, particularly outside of business hours. I apologise that this was not communicated to you by your agent during the booking process, and that our emplacement was not to your satisfaction. Please rest assured that your constructive feedback relating to the condition of some elements within our hotel has been noted and shared with our maintenance department to investigate and action immediately where possible. We are currently in the process of planning some wider rejuvenation works to be undertaken in the future so your comments will also be taken on board in that regard. Once again I thank you for your feedback and wish you all the best. Kind regards, Sam Tobin Guest Services Causeway Hotels

Room was loft style with large number of steps up to the sleeping area. This made it difficult during the night if you needed to use the toilet. Bed was one of the worst I've slept in. Was a king made up of 2 singles that were so worn and old that you could only sleep on one

Dear Dash, Thank you for taking the time to share a review on your recent stay with us. While I am pleased to hear that you found your room to be so clean, made the most of our central location, and experienced exceptional service from our receptionist on arrival; it is unfortunate that issues prevented you from enjoying your stay to the fullest on this occasion. We are currently in the process of planning rejuvenation works for the future so your constructive feedback relating the condition of some elements of the room have been noted and will be taken on board in that regard. In a more immediate sense your comments relating to issues with the television in your room as well as the bathrobes are being investigated and will be actioned immediately where possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused. Once again I thank you for your feedback and wish you all the best. Kind regards, Sam Tobin Guest Services Causeway Hotels

For an overnight stay this was perfect as we only needed a comfy bed and shower in the morning. Location is awesome and being where it is it’s not a hotel that has noise issues. Our room was compact but for us it served its purpose, so if you prefer space this place might not be

The Causeway Hotel is in a great location in Melbourne however our bedroom was on the small side. Unfortunately we were unable to move rooms due to the AO being on and everywhere being fully booked. The continental breakfast was superb.

Dear Julie T, Thank you for booking with us and for your questions. Please allow me to answer as best I can at this stage: 1.) The weather in Melbourne in April is usually fairly mild during the day however mornings and nights can be cool so a jumper or light jacket may be required. 2.) The spa in the room type you have booked is round in shape which can fit either one or two individuals. 3./4.) I am unable to confirm at this stage which level your room will be on, or it’s proximity to the lift. Room allocation is usually completed the day prior to your arrival and can be impacted by factors including existing occupancy for the room type booked; as well as occasionally, unforeseen maintenance issues. Please do not hesitate to post any further questions here or contact our friendly reservations team directly who would be more than happy to assist. We look forward to welcoming you in April. Kind regards,

Hi Mashton43 Thank you for your question, There are a few different options that you can take with regards to Airport Transfers. These are Bluebird, Starbus & Skybus. Both Bluebird and Starbus will take you from the airport direct to the hotel. Skybus will take you to Southern Cross Station where you will get onto a smaller bus to take you to the hotel, however the Skybus will drop you off at the Melbourne Town Hall, which entails a short walk to Hotel Causeway. All 3 companies are similar in price at approximately $18 p/p one way.
